Posting in the even this helps anyone: I got the black and red plastic case from verizon. I liked how it faded from black to red and is very attractive actually. I think it wwas $12-14. Problem is the black color starts to rub off. (Its just paint over the red case) Worse, Ive dropped my phone twice, and both times the case popped off, leaving my phone damaged. Yep, I have 2 damaged marks on it already. Nice job of "protecting" the phone. Return time. Dont buy.
